Out of the Mouths of Babes

Last night was family game night.  

Now before you all start rolling your eyes at the Focus on the Family-ness of our evening, you need to understand that we go into game night hoping it will end with a showing of good sportsmanship all the way around.......including mom and dad.  Because sometimes mom's competitive edge comes out, especially when dad is winning, and it isn't pretty.

Last night the game of choice was Life.  You know the game, you choose a career, get married, have kids, buy a house, lose your job because of a panicking boss - oh, sorry,  getting our Life confused with the game.   Anyways, I love that game and always insist on being banker because I like to be in control.........admitting that is the first step to recovery, right?  

My favorite quote of the evening:

G:  I landed on "Learned CPR" and now I get a Life tile.  What is CPR?

N:  You use it to save people.  It's mouth to mouth reaction......

Scot and I thought that was hysterical.  

Then I looked over at my man and thought, a little "mouth to mouth reaction" certainly goes a long way in saving him these days.

  1. That's hilarious! Chris and I got a little hostile while playing "Cheerleader Monopoly" with Cella the other day because he was winning by a landslide. Family game night is way too competitive at our house! (nothing a little CPR can't take care of, though!)
